What does not travel
Posted June 26, 2016on:
This warm and fuzzy quote might elicit vigorous nods and stories among those who like to travel.
I like travelling, I nodded when I found and read this quote, and I can tell a travel-related tale if need be. But let us spare a thought for those who do not like to travel.
An acquaintance reminded me of how some folk do not travel well. Her travel mate packed instant noodles and three-in-one coffee in her suitcase.
I can raise that bet. I know of folks who will pack rice cookers and rice. And brag about it. That is their travel tale.
Travel does not guarantee a change in perspective. Organisations that require their workers to go on “learning journeys” often have that change goal in mind. Unfortunately, they underestimate how entrenched people can be.
Just because the body travels does not mean that the mind and heart do.
